Malaria is the world's leading parasitic endemic, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, where it is a real public health problem despite enormous efforts to combat it. It is accepted that in these WHO African regions, malaria is mainly caused by P. falciparum and rarely by other species. The cases of severe malaria encountered there are often caused by plasmodium falciparum. The authors report a case of the severe malaria with plasmodium oval, in a young Senegalese patient who had spent two months in Guinea Conakry.
